#L&SR Saturday Seven. My “auto buy” authors

Saturday Seven

There are some authors I will put on my Amazon buy list without ever reading the blurb of the newest book they are releasing. It doesn’t matter what the book is about, I just know that it will be an enjoyable read no matter what the plotline. Truly. These women could re-write the phone book and I’d buy it.

So, this is the list of my “auto buy” authors, and why.

1.Jill Shalvis – because she always makes me laugh, and we need more laughter and love in the world.

2.Jayne Ann Krentz – (Amanda Quick and Jayne Castle, too!) I read all her books in whatever name she writes in because she is simply a wonderful writer and I’ve never read one of her books that didn’t give me a reading rush of pleasure.

3.Kristan Higgins – because her heroines are people I’d like to be BFFs with.

4.Lauren Layne – her writing style is so comfortable and easy to read and her characters are always spot-on.

5.Catherine Bybee – she’s a (former) nurse and so am I! But really, it’s because she writes such believable, relatable characters and weaves them into really good stories.

6.Nora Roberts – read any of her books and you’ll know why she’s considered The Queen of romantic fiction. ‘Nuff said.

7. JD Robb ( Okay, a little bit of a cheat here!) because Roarke. That says it all.

When I’m not reading the above authors, you can usually find me hanging out here: Tweet Me//Read Me// Visit Me//Picture Me//Pin Me//Friend Me//Google+Me// Triber// Book Me

  1. I’ve never heard of Lauren Layne, so going to check her out. I agree with the others, for certain, though … a funny. I love Jayne Ann Krentz and Amanda Quick, but I’ve just never gotten into her Jayne Castle books (despite the dust bunnies). I don’t know why!

    I’ve never read any Nora Roberts books, but my local bookstore has a pretty big section just for her. Which story of hers do you recommend starting with?

      Well, like a mother who can’t decide which child she loves best, I kinda feel that way about my Nora Roberts book! heehee. But a good one that’s fairly recent and is a stand alone is THE OBESSION. If you want to read a series, her BRIDAL QUARTET is another winner.

    • Lydia, I really enjoy all of her single title romantic suspense novels, but in the theme of YOUR Saturday Seven, you might try her most recent novel called “Year One”. It’s the start of a new trilogy and deals with a worldwide plague — it’s a bit like “The Stand” but with more paranormal/fantasy aspects.

  3. I’m a JD Robb fan, but not so much of Nora… though I’ve heard I’d probably enjoy her romantic suspense single titles. I’ll have to check out some of the others.

    Your first two are ones I can 100% agree with. I’ve read scores of their books and are re-readable. JAK is a prolific author and I adore EVERY genre she writes in – including the dust bunnies. 😉 There are so many places to explore on Harmony!
    A friend of mine gave me a bunch of Nora Roberts books because she was scandalized that I’d never even read one of Nora’s. So who knows, I may yet be a convert. 🙂
    Thanks for a great list!

  5. Added a bunch of these to my list of authors to try out. Thanks for this. I am woefully behind with my TBR!
